a shortened week. let's bring in our guests for their take on what went on. with us now, chip dixon, jeff cox, and rick santelli. nice to have you on the program. thanks for joining us. chip, let me begin with you. haven't see you in a little bit. we used to talk long ago when you were at a different firm. welcome back to cnbc. >> thank you. >> you are the director of research discern. what is your research telling you here about where we are in this market and in this cycle for the economy? >> well, it tell us that the housing sector is improving and the residential side. commercial permit activity, which we see, has gone up, it's kind of plateauing. it tells us we're dealing with a lot of uncertainty out there. there's a tremendous amount of pent-up capacity in corporate america if we can just get the right fiscal policies in place. this economy could do well. >> do you think things loosen up after the election when we know who the president will be? >> i think it depends. then we're going to have more clarity on the policies. what we want in place are constructive growth oriented fiscal po
because the underlying fundamentals in the u.s. economy are clearly improving, and you also have a stabilization or soft landing happening in china at the same time. >> david kelly, what do you want to be doing here? what's your strategy for the fiscal cliff? do you think we go over it, and what do you want to do? >> for a long-term investor, you don't try and play this one. i agree with stephanie about the market probably going higher once they get a resolution. they will get a resolution. it's possible it could go into early january. i still think they're more likely to get a resolution done before the end of the year. either way, they'll get a resolution done. when that happens, then we'll resort to looking at the u.s. economy, which is strengthening a bit here. also, the extreme and relative valuations between high-quality fixed income and equities will push money towards equities. i would not run for cover here because of the volatility. i think you just have to, you know, hold your ground through this and hope that the market moves higher next year. >> bob, this activity at
your money is? welcome to the "closing bell." bill griffeth rejoins us in a moment. here's how we're shaping up at end of the day. the dow jones industrial falling by 88 points. pretty much the lows of the session. 12,879, matching what we saw when harry reid began making comments about an hour and a half ago. the nasdaq lower by nearly nine points. the s&p lower by seven points. 1399, just below the 1400 level. why the late-day selloff? most on the street blaming these words out of washington about fiscal cliff. >> there's been little progress with the republicans, which is a disappointment to me. they've talked some happy talk about doing revenues, but we only have a couple weeks to get something done. so we have to get away from the happy talk and start talking about specific things. >> as we head into the fiscal cliff negotiations, my advice to the president would be seems like our friends on the other side are having some difficulty turning off the campaign. we need to sit down and work this matter out. >> behind closed doors. even with the fiscal cliff looming over the marke
. the dow is up by 44 points. the nasdaq up by 16. the s&p 500 joining us there gaining 0.5% or about six points. >> yes, i ran fast, mandy. earlier today, john boehner, the speaker of the house, spoke. the markets spiked. as you hear this sound bite, we're going to show you the dow intraday, what it did, and where you see the spike. it's a spike of more than 100 points. that's when speaker boehner spoke. listen to this. >> i believe that we can do this and avert the fiscal cliff that's right in front of us today. >> is this really what led to today's midday turn around, or was it something else? let's talk about that. quincy crosby joins us. mark spellman and kevin carone. quincy, is it that simple? they came out, they used the word constructive, framework, corner stone, all those positive words, and the market took off. >> absolutely. i was watching the body language when they finished up. they walked together. they didn't separate. the market kept making gains. it was that immediate. >> mark, do you agree? >> yeah, i think it was important. we've been looking for good news. the fact th
-on cnbc interview. good to have you on the program. thanks for joining us. >> sure, maria. >> well, tell us, what happened first yesterday at final mediation talks? was a deal ever close? >> you know, the judge has a gag order. he'll have my head if i talk about what went on during the mediation, but i think that he wanted to make sure that he did everything in his power to try to find a deal, if there was one to be found. you know, i appreciate the fact that he went through that effort. i was hopeful, but i think realistically that was going to be a tough thing to pull off. >> how much of an implication it was the fact the union leader did not show up to those mediation talks? >> well, the leader of the bakers union sent his second in command to the meeting. i think that part of what we needed to sort of focus on is the hole that's been created by the strike and the financial damage from that strike and our inability to produce at some of our critical plants. really just created a brand new hole that was too large to fill. bankrupt companies don't have a lot of margin for error to begin
with a look at the day. michael santoli and rick santelli joining us. rick, tell me what the act was like today in chicago as the market for equities was all over the map. >> it was, but all the traders normally behind me are gone. futures closed an hour ago. on the left screen they had a one-minute chart of the s&p futures. on the other screen, a one-minute chart of the ten-year. it was all about the stock market today. just consider this, right before we knew the president was re-elected, the yield on a ten-year note was 175. here we sit at 161. unchanged from yesterday. still it down ten basis points from its last friday close at 171. pretty pitmuch most of the lowe yooel yields are based on uneasiness. fiscal cliff, raising taxes in a slow economy. all of it is coming home to roost. >> mike, we had the president come out saying that he will veto any legislation that allows the tax cuts to be extended for the highest earners. is that what poured water on the rally? >> it didn't hurt. obviously, there was no breakthrough. i think the one thing to take away from today's action was the fe
